Spotlight Events feature conversations with high-profile film and television industry professionals who share helpful advice and insights on their career experiences and creative processes.
Sofia Coppola’s highly anticipated eighth film, Priscilla, is based on the memoir Elvis and Me by Priscilla Beaulieu Presley. The film, which stars Cailee Spaeny and Jacob Elordi, premiered at the 80th Venice International Film Festival, where it received a standing ovation and the best actress award for Spaeny.
Her films includes The Virgin Suicides (1999), Lost in Translation (2003) for which she won an Academy Award for Best Screenplay, Marie Antoinette (2006), Somewhere (2010), The Bling Ring (2013), The Beguiled (2017) where she made history as only the second woman to win the Best Director prize at the Cannes Film Festival, and On The Rocks (2020).
In addition to her film career, Sofia directed a production of Verdi’s classic, La Traviata at the Rome Opera House, with fashion designer Valentino Garavani and production designer Nathan Crowley.
For this Spotlight Event, Sofia will discuss her creative process in making Priscilla and her success in sustaining a career as a filmmaker.
